nêhiyaw pimâtisiwin comes to Hawai’i – NAISA 2016

It was a great honour to travel to Honolulu in May as cheerleader for the nêhiyaw pimâtisiwin /‘Living the Cree Way’ panel at the 2016 Native American and Indigenous Studies Association (NAISA) conference, hosted this year by the University of Hawai’i. (And do some genuine Cree language advocacy work in the process!)

The panel, chaired by Jodi Stonehouse (University of Alberta) included:

  • Dorothy Thunder (UofA) : Teaching nêhiyawêwin (Cree) Language Classes
  • Roxanne Tootoosis (UofA): A Narrative Inquiry with Aboriginal Women Who Have Experienced Perinatal Loss
  • Marcus Pahtayken (Blue Quills): Cree Language Revitalization

Here (at last) are a few photos from their presentation.
